In a story heard only on 1110 KBND, Central Oregon Land Watch has filed an “Intent to Appeal” Deschutes County's ordinance that allows for special events on farmlands. Watch spokesperson Paul Dewey says the group will appeal the ruling to the State. The group believes that large and loud weddings and other events on farmland will have a cumulative negative impact on wildlife, and on neighbors. "Frankly, if the County had taken a more cautious approach on this, they could've taken a more middle ground, and allowed the farmers to have activities and still protect the neighbors.” Dewey believes a more moderate approach would have been to not allow events with amplified noise, and to cap the number of people at more like 100 people, rather than the 500 people currently allowed under the ordinance. He believes it could take up to 6 weeks for the Land Use Board of appeals to rule on the appeal.
